Observer
NameRob R
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI was doing some astrophotography between Cygnus and Cassiopeia around Lacerta and towards the east south eastern sky the clouds lit up bright blue. It caught my attention so I looked over and seen a object streak out from the bottom of the clouds and race across the sky from west to east. I was so excited by this I completely forgot to turn my camera. This was quite disappointing but, I was very lucky to have seen such a bright object enter our atmosphere. Keep stargazing, you never know what you may see!
